What version of Excel are you using?  How is the data imported?  Can you post a sample worksheet?  We really need more information.

In Excel 2010 (or the like) if you click on the Data Ribbon and then click existing connections, does anything show in the existing workbork?  If so, double click on the existing connection and then click on properties.  Click on definition and make sure that all settings are correct.
